September and October dates

Hi all! Due to my confusion, you may or may not have some confusion about our September meeting at the Wilds. I had two dates on my calendar, for some reason, and I was confusing myself because of Labor Day. Our September date is (drum roll….) the 5th. Not news to you? Good! See you on Tuesday September 5th! Same plan (meet in parking lot), same time (10AM until done), same watch for weather updates.

We will also have an October session to close out the season on October 3rd. Karen Goodell will meet us at the Wilds and will help us process what we learned this year. We’ll review data collection protocol and bee ID and will look ahead to next year. Spoiler alert: Karen definitely wants us to be involved next year!

More details to follow, but for how please mark your calendar!

Tomorrow at the Wilds

 Looks like a great day to count bees and flowers! Please RSVP to me today so we know who to wait for in the parking lot. If you’re coming, bring all the goods for hot sunny day… lots of water, hat, sunscreen,food and we’ll meet in the parking lot at 10.

July 11th session cancelled at The Wilds, 80% chance of thunderstorms!

Don’t we usually dry out in July? It’s not looking promising for catching bees tomorrow. We don’t have a third rain date, but I am available on July 18th and will be at the Wilds to give it a try. I know schedules get full, but if you’re able to make it on the 18th, we’ll do our best to get our July data collected. I will post any possible changes to that schedule (rain????) here by next Monday.

Cheers, and the plus is I don’t have to water the garden!!


July’s visit to The Wilds

Hi all! Just a quick note to remind everyone that our July session is not the first Tuesday, July 4th, but is scheduled for Thursday July 6th. Unfortunately, the weather forecast in Cumberland for Thursday calls for an 80% chance of thunderstorms. Our rain date is Tuesday, July 11th, which right now looks sunny and warm as far as the forecast goes.

I will update this site on Wednesday evening, and will make the call by 6:30AM (if not before) on Thursday if we’ll be postponing this week due to rain.

Remember you can always call or text me just to be sure: 330 495 1284.

Happy 4th to all!
